Security guards of the Supreme Court detained “Young Front” activists Nasta Palazhanka and minor Yulya Mikhailava.

Some “Young Front” activists held a street action opposite the building of the Supreme Court. They unfurled a banner “Nürnberg Tribunal for Communism”, Radio Svaboda reports.

Yulya Mikhailava was caught first. Some minutes later, the girl was set free, and Nasta Palazhanka went to learn what was happening. As a result, both of them were detained.

KGB officers arrived to the Supreme Court and talked to every girl separately. In particular, they wanted to know what objections they have against communism.

In an hour Nasta Palazhanka was released, and the underage Yuliya Mikhajlava was taken to the police department of Leninski district. At 6.15 p.m. relatives came to take the girl.
